Sylvia Celebrates 35th Anniversary Of No 1 Hit "Nobody" With Appearances At The Grand Ole Opry And More!


New York, NY (Top40 Charts) This year marks the 35th anniversary of Sylvia's No. 1 smash crossover hit "Nobody," which dominated the country music charts, leading the acclaimed singer to win the ACM award for "Female Vocalist of the Year." The chart-topping vocalist shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon, as she returns to the legendary Grand Ole Opry this Saturday for another uplifting performance.

"I can't imagine a better way to celebrate the 35th Anniversary of 'Nobody' topping the charts than to perform it on the Grand Ole Opry," says Sylvia. "I've been listening to the Opry my whole life. In fact, my earliest memory of listening to the Opry was during a road trip from Kokomo, Indiana to Lafayette, Tennessee on a Friday night to visit my grandparents. It makes me wonder what little child might be out there listening this Saturday night dreaming of someday standing on that stageā€¦"

After high school graduation, Sylvia moved to Nashville to realize her dream of becoming a recording artist and in a few short years signed with RCA Records. The rest is history! Sylvia is detailing her full career journey on her web series "Sylvia: The View From Here," produced by The Nashville Soundbite. In the latest episode, the songstress opens up about her early career when she auditioned for the part of Daisy Duke in the hit series "The Dukes of Hazzard." Even though ultimately she didn't get the part, the story came full circle when Daisy Duke actress Catherine Bach was the presenter the year Sylvia picked up the award for "Female Vocalist of the Year" at the ACM Awards.

On her latest album It's All In The Family, Sylvia expanded her horizons as a songwriter, co-writing 9 of the 12 songs on the record. The singer/songwriter is returning to east Tennessee on Saturday, August 19th for a 4:00p matinee show at the Sixth Annual Smoky Mountains Songwriters Festival in Gatlinburg, TN. In addition to singing the hits, Sylvia will take attendees on a musical journey into the heart of her new album, exploring life's challenges and joys, and the growth that she - and they - have experienced along the way.

About Sylvia:
With the release of Sylvia's second RCA album, Just Sylvia, the single "Nobody" sold two million copies and was #1 on all country music charts. It was awarded BMI "Song of the Year" for receiving the most radio airplay in 1983. "Nobody" also reached #13 as a crossover hit on Billboard's Top 100 chart and spent a total of 52 weeks on both charts. Recording for RCA until the end of 1987, Sylvia recorded six albums and garnered a total of 13 Top Ten and No. 1 songs, selling over 4 million records. In 1982, Sylvia was named "Female Vocalist of the Year" by the Academy of Country Music and was a Grammy nominee in the "Best Female Country Vocal Performance" category in 1983. Over an eight-year period, Sylvia crisscrossed America many times with her popular concert performances (over 200 per year), and she was a frequent guest on network television talk shows and specials - from The Today Show and Good Morning, America to Dick Clark's American Bandstand, and the Country Music Awards. Today, Sylvia records for her own independent record label, Red Pony Records and has released four CDs, The Real Story (1996), Where In The World(2002), and A Cradle In Bethlehem (2002). Sylvia's first record in 14 years, It's All In The Family (2016), was released in late 2016.
